2017 TLO Donations Drive
« on: February 05, 2017, 04:58:34 pm »
DONATE NOW!

TLO Donations Drive 2017

Hello everyone,

It's come time again for TLO to open its arms unto you and issue forth this plea: Although we enjoy providing you with the servers, games and events that you love, there is a cost involved. We rely on your donations to keep up with operating expenses!

Here's a breakdown of our annual costs:

RPG-X Server Hosting (2 severs) @ $10/mo: $120/ year
Web Hosting @ $82.75/semi-annually: $165.50/ year
Domain Name: $12.16/ year
Domain Protections: $2.88/ year

Total Regular Yearly Expenditures: $300.54/ year
Current Budget Reserve: $101.89

...and that doesn't include incidental expenditures, or expenditures in the case of an emergency (which we've had in the past).

The Last Outpost doesn't have ads. We don't monetize any of the services we provide in any way. Nobody in the Cabinet gets paid *sniff*. We're here because we love it, and we know you love it too - which is why we're asking now for your help.

Our goal for this drive, which will run from today and will close February 20th, 2017 is $275 USD. Due to a bit of reserve funds left over last year, we've lowered our previous goal of $300 a year to $275--but anything donated above the $275 goal will go into building up our reserve funds even more!

As an added bonus, one lucky donator will win a prize donated by our lovely President, Serris! The prize on offer is any one item on Steam up to the value of your donation (not to exceed $59.99). For every $5 you donate to TLO, you will receive 1 virtual "ticket" to enter a drawing for our prize. Fractions of tickets will be given for donations above $5 (ie, if you donate $27.50 you'll be given 4.5 tickets), and drawings will be held by a randomized electronic program. There's a minimum $5 donation to be entered to win prizes!

Thanks to Serris who donated our prize!

Donating is easy, just click here or on the many links on this and other pages and fill out the simple form. Via PayPal, we accept most currencies and all major credit cards. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

I sincerely thank you in advance for your generosity in contributing to TLO. Your contributions help keep our community going--and for that, we all thank you! :)

THANK YOU TO THE DONERS WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED SO FAR THIS YEAR:

Jim ($140)
Serris ($100)
Criminula ($18.50)
Scott Archer ($16.25)
StringTheorist ($15)
Martin Thompson ($13.37)

A special thank you to Jim who already donated $75 before the Donations Drive officially began! Thank you Jim for your generosity!  ^_^ Per my previous announcement, anyone who donated before the Donations Drive will still be entered into our prize drawing!

We have 5 days left in our drive and unfortunately we're less than halfway to our goal! Please consider contributing if you can to help keep TLO up and running!

A hearty thank you to Jim for his additional donation of $65, bringing his grand total of contributions this drive to $140!  ^_^

Also a thank you to Criminula for his donation of $18.50!  8)

These donations have put us over our goal! Thank you all for your generosity. We will continue to accept donations year round and anything we get over the goal will go to building up our reserve funds. You can still donate to be entered into the drawing to win our prize through the end of the day on Monday, February 20th.
